A lump like swelling could be a cyst. A cyst is basically a fluid filled swelling. The fluid may be clear or colored or even gaseous.
The commonest in your age group is a bartholin cyst. Just outside the opening of the vagina are glands called Bartholin glands. These produce a lubricating oil which aid during sexual activities.
These glands become more active around teens and twenties. The duct of such a gland may get blocked to form a bartholin cyst.
Other Causes of Lumps
Angiomas are lumps formed by swelling of blood vessels in the area. These swellings are purplish-red in color and painless. No treatment is required. They subside slowly on their own.
It may be a sign of some STD. Different STDs may produce blisters which are initially painless, later they usually ulcerate and give pain.
